Conserving Energy Consumption via The Corporate Network

Listen to the Podcast

Berna Devrim, Sr. Manager, Access Switching Marketing at Cisco SystemsIT suppliers are delivering products that consume less energy while offering new IT delivery approaches such as data center virtualization to reduce cooling and power demands. Cisco Systems has taken a broader approach to energy management by delivering a power command and control architecture called Cisco EnergyWise which seeks to provide business and IT leaders with the tools to measure, manage and control the power consumption of all devices connected to the corporate network. Further, EnergyWise seeks to connect facility heating, air conditioning, lighting and other non-IT systems—systems that consume the largest proportion of corporate energy—in an effort to provide IT leaders with the tools and means to manage their overall energy consumption. Berna Devrim, Sr. Manager, Access Switching Marketing at Cisco Systems is my guest as we discuss Cisco’s EnergyWise initiative and what it means to business and IT leaders who seek to control energy consumption.

    Maybe it consume less energy but custumers used to change it more often; IT supplier have to sold more to make money so the used to sold much more than the custumer need!

    there is only 2-3 mark that don’t play the game; thank Cisco.

    How does EnergyWise changes the HVAC schedules. Does it uses the existing building management system. Or Does it have the capability to directly chnage schedules for IP enabled HVAC systems

  5. Al Kotob said:

    Cisco EnergyWise leverages the existing Building Mgmt Systems (BMS) to manage the various building facilities systems. Cisco EnergyWise does not have the capability to directly change HVAC, lighting controllers, etc.. However, Schneider has integrated the Cisco EnergyWise application into Continuum and InfXure Central. Ditto for IBM Tivoli (energy mgmt). With this, you have a unified view/control of the building facilities and the IT side supported with Cisco EnergyWise.
